THE Lagos State Traffic Management Agency (LASTMA) has redeployed two of its officers to Kwara, Oyo and Edo states.
Yekeen Babatunde Bello now heads the Kwara State Road Traffic Management Authority (KWARTMA), while Femi Falade is now in charge of the Oyo State Road Traffic Management Authority (OYRTMA). Both men were seconded from LASTMA.
Dennis Oloriegbe will resume duty as the new Managing Director of the Edo State Traffic Management Agency.
LASTMA also carried out intensive training for traffic officers in Delta, Ogun, Oyo, Ekiti, Kwara and Rivers states.
The training, it said, was to acclimatise them to international best practices so as to make them more efficient and service driven.
The statement said Oloriegbe’s release was sequel to the request of the Edo State Government for him to come and reengineer, package and position the Edo State traffic outfit in accordance with the best global practices.
Before his appointment, Oloriegbe was the Chief instructor and head of the Lagos State Drivers’ Institute (LASDRI), Ikeja centre. He joined the service of LASTMA in the year 2000 and served in various capacities meritoriously to become a Zonal head, where he supervised and managed activities of over one hundred traffic officials successfully.
LASTMA General Manager Olawale Musa thanked Oloriegbe, and wished him the best in his new assignment and other future endeavours.
